    Ok heres the deal:

    computer wouldnt get past the welcome screen, it would just lock up totally. nothing new was installed or deleted, no hardware changes either. First thought my hdd was corrupted but tested just perfect on another computer. Than thought maybe motherboard was screwed up somehow.......so I ordered another motherboard......than played around with the FSB and lowered it from 133 to 100 and now everything runs fine......Now I'm thinking it's the chip because it still runs as hot as it did when it ran at 133. Im probably ordering a new chip too anyway. Any ideas what could be wrong? Oh yea the highest FSB I can raise it to before it gets all nuts on me is 120.

    With the XP2100+ and the GF4 TI4600, thats taking a hell of a lot of power. What size is your PSU ?. I'm wondering if the PC is running out of steam at 133 FSB ?
    My friend with XP2100+ and GF4 TI4600 was told to buy at least a 400W PSU to run the show, worked fine after :)
